Young CPM leader and Deputy Mayor of Shimla MC, Tikender Singh Panwar will be party’s face from Shimla Urban seat for the forthcoming assembly poll.
Tikender Singh Panwar is one of the known faces in Shimla region and touted as a strong comrade among the party line. In the recent Shimla MC Elections he polled 21,196 votes and had defeated his nearest rival BJP candidate Devinder Chauhan by 4778 votes.
CPM had substantial support in Shimla assembly seat; even it had won it once by a thin margin. In the last five assembly elections, CPM has made triangular contest on this seat and with Panwar’s name in the foray, it will definitely augment the tension in the Congress and BJP camps.
